An Edwardian era sterling silver shield pendant with an inset cabochon of sparkling aventurine glass or golstone, originally made as an ornament for a pocket watch chain.
This unusual piece is nicely weighted and fabulous worn as a unique pendant.
The back is hand chased with an intricate design of interlaced fern fronds and the pendant can be worn either way around.
+ All the detail
Unmarked sterling silver (not unusual for the Victorian era), touchstone tested as 925 silver and guaranteed as such.
Size: .82 x 1 inches (21mm x 25mm) and 6mm in thickness. The total drop from the chain including the suspension ring is 30mm.
The aventurine cabochon is .5 inch or 12mm diameter
Age: c. 1900
Weight: 6.9 grams (medal only)
Condition: Very good. Nice natural patina to the sterling silver, no chips or scratches to the aventurine.
The Chain: Included with purchase is a new stainless steel chain, 29 inches or 74cm long. Stainless steel is hypoallergenic and a great match for old silver. Photograph 4 shows the pendant and chain on a life size torso.
A gorgeous piece - nicely weighted and very attractive with the sparkly cabochon contrasting well with the silver.
